Develop your web skills with new college course

South Essex College is launching a new web development course at its modern digital campus in Basildon.

The course, Web Application Development Level 5, is a professional adult qualification. It’s designed to upskill those already working in a website development role but also to offer students with no previous experience in programming a pathway to employment.

The course has been developed with the Code Institute, Europe’s biggest online coding bootcamp. Modules will include interactive frontend development, data centric development and full stack frameworks with Django. 

The technologies sector has seen huge growth in recent years. Vacancies for roles in website and app development increase year on year. This course will take place at the college’s new Centre for Digital Technologies, which will help to build the workforce of the future locally and nationally.

Areas of the building have been modelled on tech sector offices, giving that innovative ‘Google’ feel to a lot of the open plan spaces. Students will be able to experience working in this kind of modern environment, preparing them to enter the industry.

Rathi Raman, Curriculum Head for ICT and Games, said: “We are excited to be offering this course which provides students with industry relevant skills along with a comprehensive, 24 hour support package that has been developed in collaboration with and supported by the Code Institute.”
